WotLK Herbalism: List of Herbs and Skill Level

September 22, 2008

After several sessions of struggling with my level 70 hunter to travel all the various Northrend zones in search of herbs and coming up mostly empty, I finally had the bright idea to use my premade PvP druid since he is level 80 and can fly over Northrend.  That is a much easier way to find herbs rather than trekking through the aggro-crazy mobs on land as a level 70 noob.  Alas, Mr PVP did not have any tradeskills, but a quick visit to the Herbalism trainer took care of that.



Lich King (WotLK) Alchemy Recipes Online

August 4, 2008

Yesterday I put the new Alchemy recipes, graciously supplied by beta tester ‘Aurik’, into our database.  This is just the trainer recipes which were available over the weekend.  Apparently the Alchemy trainer is in Dalaran, as Aurik was unable to locate a trainer in his starting zone (for those of you in Beta who might be looking for an Alchie trainer).  I still have some Leatherworking recipes that I’ll be working on today :)


The New Alchemy Stones (2.4 Patch)

March 18, 2008

There’s not a whole lot of excitement for Alchemy in the upcoming patch, the only official changes are the removal of the cooldown for Arcanite Transmutes and the increase in stack size for Gift of Arthas. Pretty boring really, although I agree with removing transmute timers on the old-world transmutes. With Burning Crusade transmutes, no one will ever want to waste a CD on an old world transmute. I could see going with a separate CD for old transmutes vs new ones, but I suppose removing them completely works too, heheh.


Windy Returns, Chocolate Cake and Discoveries!

December 13, 2007

Yesterday I was thrilled to discover that they fixed my beloved gas clouds during the maintenance, even though they didn’t release the 2.3.2 patch yet. Hey, I don’t care how I got it, I’m gonna take it! So now I’m back in business farming motes for my warrior’s epic flying mount.


At Long Last, Gem Transmutes!

December 10, 2007

Over the weekend I finally got my Alchemist to level 60 and bought out all the Unidentified Plant Parts on the Auction House to get the Honored reputation needed for the Earthstorm Diamond transmute. This has been a long-time goal for me, especially when you consider that the toon in question was level 35 when the expansion came out. I realize that getting one character to 60 in a year isn’t a huge task, but when he’s at the back of the line with 4 other gals who were trying to go from 60-70 at the same time, it’s a big deal. At least for me =)


Alchemy 300 to 350

August 20, 2007

After weeks of torture, I finally got my hand-me-down warlock to level 50 so he could become a Master Alchemist. In some ways it was almost anti-climatic because it only took me 15 minutes to go from 300 to 350. And most of that was due to bank->trainer->mailbox gyrations to grab the various herbs I’d collected for the big moment. (more…)

Sneak Peek @ Patch 2.2

July 16, 2007

I arrived home on Saturday to discover that we had Patch Notes out for 2.2 — and here I had no idea we had a new patch on the horizon! I’ve been working over the weekend to locate all the changed items and update my database, but I haven’t completed the review yet. I didn’t want to leave you guys in suspense though, so I thought I’d post my initial observations. (more…)

New Alchemy Recipes Online

June 21, 2007

Just wanted to let you guys know that I’ve updated the Alchemy listings with all the various discovery recipes.  I don’t have any skill requirement listed on them since I’m not 100% clear on how that works, but they are online now.  I also have text in the notes that states which recipes are learned from Discovery:
